|“The old people must start talking and the young people must start listening.”|
|–Thomas Banyacya, HOPI|
|We are at a critical time in transferring cultural knowledge and spiritual ways. During the last few years the young people have not been interested in learning the old ways. The only place this knowledge is found is among the Elders. We must encourage the young to visit with the Elders. The adults need to think also about learning the culture. The Elders are getting old and soon will go to the other side. Each of us must pause and think about our individual responsibility to learn the culture and teach this to our young.|
Great Spirit, help us to learn and remember the old ways.
